Description: BLACK LIKE ME is a 1964 film based on the nonfiction book of the same name by journalist John Howard Griffin. Griffin, a white native of Dallas, first published the landmark memoir Black Like Me in 1961. The book, hailed by the New York Times as an "essential document of contemporary American life," describes his six-week experience traveling on Greyhound buses (occasionally hitchhiking) throughout the racially segregated states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia passing as a black man. At the time of the book's writing in 1959, race relations were particularly strained in America; Griffin's aim was to explain the difficulties facing black people in certain areas. The poignant and moving film dramatizes this ground-breaking and powerful piece of literature.

Description: THE BEST OF MEN is the gripping story of Dr. Ludwig Guttman's transformative care of paraplegics. Toward the end of the World War II, Guttmann, a Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany, arrived at Stoke Mandeville Hospital in England and changed the lives of his paralyzed soldiers and skeptical staff using wheel-chair based sports. Through sports the soldiers who were suffering from institutionalized neglect, learned to live more fulfilling lives, build physical strength and gain self-respect. Dr. Guttmann, an unsung hero, helped start the Paralympic Games. In 1966, the long-time British citizen was deservedly knighted for his part in bringing hope to the hopeless.

"Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing Western New York" airs Monday, May 4 at 9 p.m.
BUFFALO, N.Y. - Frederick Law Olmsted, America's first and best-known landscape architect, created an enduring legacy in Western New York. Perhaps best known for his design of New York City's Central Park, Olmsted had a powerful and lasting influence on our community.
Watch Target Prevention now
Western New York’s statistics for health and wellness tell a troubling story. Ours is a community in which many individuals and families struggle with high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer. What makes this issue even more troubling is that even with the wealth of health information and services available – many do not ask the vital questions or get the critical preventive medical services.
Health researchers identify many screening and maintenance procedures that can be used to prevent future health challenges. These range from cholesterol screenings, routine lab work for annual physical exams to specific cancer screenings. There is also a tendency to overlook the role that lifestyle plays in our overall health. We are all dealt a genetic hand of cards, a predisposition to certain diseases we cannot control. For most people, health behaviors trump inherited risk—70-80% of disease is determined by lifestyle.
We each hold a lot of power when it comes to our health. We have the unique opportunity to prevent, stall or lessen the impact of many diseases. Target Prevention, a WNED-TV original production, will show you the most effective things you can do to take control of your health.
Host Susan Hunt is joined by Dr. Fuad Sheriff of Amherst Medical Associates and Dr. Joseph Corigliano from Buffalo Medical Group to discuss the significant role individuals play in their health and wellness. Personal stories featuring individuals and health professionals are woven throughout the program to emphasize the major themes.
Research demonstrates the positive impact of exercise and good nutrition. Small choices we make everyday really do impact our health. We also need to make certain that we take advantage of screening tests that lead to early detection, better treatment and even prevention. Our “targets” with this program are cardiovascular disease and cancer focusing on high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, breast cancer and colon cancer.
